#1 – The Shawshank Redemption
When I told the bf I had never seen this movie, he fell over dead from the shock. His zombie corpse has been pestering me to see it ever since.
Well I finally did, and as predicted, I loved it. Unsurprisingly, since it was nominated for seven Oscars, it has everything that I think a good drama should have. Drama (didn’t see that one coming did you?), a little comedy, dark moments, uplifting moments, shocking moments…it’s all in there. And it turned out to be one of those dramas that leaves you feeling good, not so depressed you feel like burying your face in a pint or two of Ben & Jerry’s (ahem, Revolutionary Road).
So, since the vast majority of people have likely already seen this movie, I’ll keep it short and leave it with this: Two thumbs up!
